    I would think that when they release the iPhone 4 on Verizon it will not have the antenna issue. Do you think that Apple will "officially" relase an iPhone 4S when the Verizon iPhone is realeased? Maybe the white iPhone will surface in a couple of weeks?

    Or do you think Apple will not do anything until the summer?

    I personally think Apple is going to begin to quietly ship the revised antenna for both AT&T and Verizon (to the naked eye, it's not much different at all). This would solve the separate case issue also.

    iPhone 5 will likely be LTE. I don't see a need for a second-generation iPhone 4. Since they just are releasing iPhone 4 for Verizon and AT&T's LTE won't be ready until January 2012, I bet they skip any revisions this summer and release iPhone 5 in January 2012 - LTE - For both networks.

    Again, just my thoughts.

    why don't you read and stop speculating, why has everyones IQ dropped today

    it's a CDMA iPhone 4 not iPhone 4S, it's still the same name

    no news on white iPhones = assume it's been delayed until apple says so

    Please relax. I obviously just say 4S (where S=whatever will Apple plan to do?). It is nothing technical. I'm just wondering.

    S could equal white iphone, S could equal an official release. Heck, S could even equal iphone 5. Who knows with Apple these days.

    IMO, 4G will come before 4S, which actually going to be 4GS

    Apple won't introduce the revised version quietly at this point, it's too close to June release, instead the 5th gen iPhone will come with a fixed antennae, and IMO LTE support, and it'll be called iPhone 4G.

    In June of this year we'll probably see a iPhone 4s, same design as the current 4, but probably the improved antenna design and a speed and possibly memory bump. Both Verizon and AT&T will probably get it. It'll be evolutionary and not a major model change I think. Still probably worth the wait for current 3GS and before iPhone owners. Not a good time to go out and buy a iPhone 4 I think. Apple will use the June refresh to consolidate the 2 carriers iPhone models.

    IIRC, Apple said the "S" in 3GS stood for "Speed," but don't quote me on it.

    As others have stated, I believe the new iPhone this year will just be with the revised Antenna that Verizon is getting and possibly a bump up to 64GB in storage, but I'm not holding my breath on that. Unless something awesome is added this summer (like the 3GS was after the 3G, same enclosure) I'll probably just be sticking with my iPhone 4 until iPhone 6 is released. Which is saying something because I've upgraded every year since the original iPhone was released. :confused:

    I don't think the June refresh will be much more than a few software features, possible fixes to antennea and maybe 64GB.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see support for HSDPA+. Then they really could call it the 4G...

    Ahh, right. (lol I even have that model)
    Well they could call it a bunch of stuff. Since both networks will have "4G" out, they can call it iPhone 4G, or iPhone LTE, etc...

    Depends all on how long Apple wants to milk out the phone. I think the design is spot on with the Apple lineup of products so that won't be changing, but I could be wrong.

    I still am hoping for some kind of new iPhone this summer because I'd love to upgrade.

    I think the next GSM iPhone will be 'iPhone 4X', and will be launched in June as usual :D

    not sure, but 'iPhone 4G' might be good...and stand for a multipurpose device 4G - Global (VZ/ATT LTE), 4G - Data, etc.

    I should be fine with the new iPhone for Verizon, I'm going to definitely give it a try out (havent upgraded my phone in a few years, not for really any particular reason either)..just kind of sucks no voice+simultaneous data, hopefully hotspot feature wont be insanely expensive.

    It's going to be one helluva boring key-note this year, that's for sure. A one year wait for an antenna fix and more disk space? And maybe improved notifications, but I agree, that's probably all we'll get.

    They need to come up with a heck of a lot more than that to keep up with phones like the new MAtrix.

    The iPhone 4 for the rest of the world won't be tweaked. If they were going to make changes they would of done it a long time ago and not waited till the Verizon release. We only have 5 months till an iPhone 5

    For the iPhone 5 I would expect the following which will be mostly internal changes
    - Processor upgrade
    - More RAM
    - Camera upgrade front and back
    - Antenna adjustment
    - Better battery

    This phone will be released in June for ALL carriers including Verizon. This may or may not be a single phone or maybe 2 phones a GSM and CDMA. Still not sure about LTE and HSDPA+ but regardless the new phone will go to ALL carriers.

    The reason for this is that Verizon does not want to be in the position of offering an iPhone 4 at $199 and ATT will by then be offering the same phone for $99. In order for Verizon to be competitive with new or existing customers they will need to match price points with ATT so
    iPhone 4 - $99
    iPhone 5 - $199 and $299

    I thought i read somewhere the revised antenna seen on the Verizon Iphone will be what is on the IP5. Not sure where though, either BGR or Engadget. i'd like to see:

    Proc upgrade: hoping for dual core 1 Ghz
    Improved battery
    Upgraded ram to 768 but may not notice to much on this front.
    HSPA+

    For me, 32g's is enough but a bump to 64 could lower the price a bit for the 32g. Improved camera's are always welcome but that always seems like a no brainer.

    I'm sure the 0.54% of people that complained about it will be very happy, I've never had antenna issues with the 4. And no, I don't use a case/bumper.

    Most of the rumors have indicated that the iPhone 5 will not be LTE--that's not coming until iPhone 6 in 2012.

    Certainly seems odd to me though. The move from iPhone 4 to iPhone 4G makes a lot of sense and fits with previous naming conventions.

    theres no proof (yet) that the change in design was to combat the death grip issues. It might just be the way it had to be engineered for CDMA.
